Infrastructure Bill [HL] — Commons Amendments (9 Feb 2015)

Lord Truscott: My Lords, I speak in support of the spirit of Amendment 21. As a former Energy Minister, an investor in the hydrocarbon sector and a former non-executive director in hydrocarbon companies, I have given a great deal of thought to whether I support the development of fracking in the UK.

Infrastructure Bill [HL] — Commons Amendments (9 Feb 2015)

Lord Truscott: No, because that would be a short-term benefit. We should look at the long-term planning.

You can have shale production, but it is short term. If, for example, you invest in a major field, it can take 10 or 20 years to develop—Kashagan in...

Infrastructure Bill [HL] — Commons Amendments (9 Feb 2015)

Lord Truscott: That is exactly the reason. The noble Lord may know that that is why some companies are going bust—today Max Petroleum, which develops oil and gas in Kazakhstan, said that it was facing insolvency because it can no longer raise the funds to develop new fields. When the price of oil is under $50 a barrel—and we are already seeing the effect on companies such as BP, which is laying off...
